Fossil energy
Fossil energy is generated through the burning of fossil remains. At this
burning the fossil fuel is used as a source of heat to make steam out of
water. This steam is used for the working of a turbine. With the help of a
generator, this turbine can m ake electricity. Examples of fossil fuels are
oil, natural gas and c oal. These fossil fuels are remains of dead materials
of plants and animals. These plants and animals died over a million years
ago and under the pressure of the earth's surface and through the decay
of this material their came a process of compress ion. Carbon is the main
part of these fossile fuels, the more carbon, the heavier the fuel.
